Southeastern Conference Commissioner Greg Sankey has said he is perhaps the most influential figure in college athletics. On Thursday, he wants to see the NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament with “fresh eyes.” Perhaps he is currently looking to expand the field of 68 teams.

Sankey warns, “We’re not ready to headline yet.” But he’s also open to conversations about Big Dance, which doesn’t exclude small conference champions and may include more teams.

As an example, he mentions the 2022 College World Series Baseball Championship. It was won by SEC member Mississippi, the last team in the field of 64 teams.
